Dear Friend,
Dont worry you will get well soon. I feel Homeopathy can help you faster in this condition, take medicne Arnica 30, 4 Pills every 2 hourly for 4 days.Also take enough rest for just four days.
still if u are not better take an x ray of right knee and consult a ortho doctor for opinion.
But i strongly feel Homeopathic medicine Arnica 30 will help you.Arnica will cure any internal injury and pain caused due to fall.
Thank you

Hi Welcome to HCM.
It looks like you have ligament tear in the knee joint. Knee joints are weight bearing joints, any injury to them should not be taken lightly. If not treated properly, over a period of time it may cause more trouble. I suggest you consult an orthopedic surgeon right away.

2years after tkr, have burning, stiffness after standing in one place for a few minutes, pressure behind knee, actually pressure discomfort in back of leg from thigh to calf. The stiffness after standing for just a short time is what really bothers me. Went through usual therapy and achieved excellent flexibility. Sorry, don t know exact number. Still ride my recumbent bike, walk every day. Within 10 minutes of walking, knee starts to burn. Also am not really steady on my feet anymore because of the difference of leg length. I have neuropathy, but not severe, and wonder if that might cause some of the burning.
